[Image of two yellow-eyed tuxedo cats. The one on the left lying down is Telstar. The one looking at the camera on the right is Sputnik.]

Unfortunately it is not the joyous occasion it usually is, because Sputnik has gone missing.

We last saw him the evening of Wednesday 7 March, where he ate his gooshy food and a tiny bit of cantaloupe (he's mad for melon) with gusto. Our neighbour says she saw him playing with his brother - by which she probably means "fighting" - in our garden during the day on Thursday 8 March. No one saw him yesterday.

We questioned Telstar. He has been in the house a good deal, which is very unlike him.

Me: "Telstar, what did you do with your little brother?"
Telstar: "Mrow!"
Me: "Do you know where he is?"
Telstar: *purrrrrrr*
Me: "Is he trapped in a shed? Could you show us?"
Telstar: *winds around legs*
Me: "Did you do him in and bury his body in the woods so you could have all the goosh forever?"
Telstar: "Mrow?"

etc. So you can see how fruitful that line of enquiry was.

The bloke created a "Lost Cat" flyer and canvassed the neighbours last night. He also phoned the Blue Cross, who said any vet or facility that took him in would scan him for his microchip immediately and would contact us. One of our neighbours said her cat got locked in a shed in the allotments behind our house, so once it gets to be a reasonable hour of the morning, we'll go there and ask to walk around and call for him.

Re: Sputnik

Thank you. We couldn't find or hear him on the allotments, but we put our flyers up and the place is packed (mild weather, start of spring) so if he is trapped in there, hopefully someone will hear him today.

I hope you find him soon - I'm sure he's fine, on some grand adventure, but us humans get worried!

Thank you. Me too. I hope he's off gallivanting, too. It would be better than him being trapped somewhere. :(

I was housemates with two cats who were kitty siblings. Koobi took to jaunting off for 48 hours at a time, which freaked me out. Fora would wait and wait for him to come back, and sometimes wouldn't eat until he did.

<3 u, Koobi & Fora

Fingers crossed for your tuxedo kitty.

Thank you. Telstar isn't prone to ignoring his stomach, so there has been no hunger-striking from him! The signs are up and we've talked to most of our neighbours, so now we just have to wait and see. :/

I know. That's my big worry - if he goes off for a month or more and then turns up after we've left. :(

Thank you. I hope he's listening to all the "come home" messages being beamed on his wavelength...

Thank you. He's not back yet. :( We're doing all we can (walking around, yelling, rattling a food bag). We keep attracting Telstar, which is both funny and tragic.

Not good. I was all set to joke about flashing your melons (you said he's a fan) but I'll wait until he's returned home safe. Darn his cute, furry hide.

I am using every ounce of my Affinity with Cats (TM) to will him back to you.

Hope he turns up shortly with a 'What? I've been busy' swagger.

Oh, I'm sure he will. And he'll follow it up with a demand for gooshy food.

I just hope he does it soon.

I hope Sputnik comes back soon. I know you love that cat and I enjoy seeing him in the many pictures you post of him.

Its heartbreaking.
Lucy our previous cat went missing once and it was 2 weeks before I found her. She had got very lost. All the streets in the area looked identical and I think she was disorientated.
Don't give up hope.

Thank you. We're trying not to be disconsolate and keep up the shouting/walking/food-rattling routine in case he wanders back into earshot.

I'm way behind on news from the outside world. Has Sputnik resurfaced yet? There didn't seem to be any news in your recent entries (unless I missed it, which is entirely possible).

No, he hasn't. :( We're still calling for him every day in case he wanders back into earshot, and leaving the house accessible when we're out - normally the cats can only get into the kitchen when we aren't there.
